If you want to know how to stop malware, this article can help! Has your computer been acting weird lately? Don’t get mad – get even! Know that frequent error messages, sluggish running speeds, excessive pop-ups, massive spam emails, phishing attempts, hoax alerts, loss of data and other strange behavior are all clear signs of infections from malware.
Malware is any program that is actually set up to harm your computer without your knowledge or consent. The term malware is short for malicious software. It is designed to harm your computer for some gain. The term malicious is what it is designed to do to your computer – make it do something malicious, just like a virus, a Trojan horse, or a worm.
Not to be confused with viruses, worms, and Trojan horses, these other programs are called cookies, which are designed to track your movements via inbuilt parameters, and send information about you to another machine without your knowledge. This kind of behavior is different than viruses, and if you accidentally install one, it’s not a big deal. Just uninstall AntiMalware Go. This program comes pretty handy when you accidentally install something that’s hard to remove. It allows you to scope out every little part of the many windows that AntiMalware finds. If you want to uninstall AntiMalware Go, all you have to do is delete all the registry values, which are near the top of the list. Then you’ll have to go through the list and actually find the programs that are associated with this malicious software. In my experience, going through this procedure swiftly is inevitable unless you are very familiar with the Windows registry.
When you get to the point where you are losing track of what you were doing and wondering what brought on the errors, don’t be afraid to type in “command get HKCUSoftwareMicrosoftWindowsCurrentVersionRun” and “regedit”. You’ll find the culprit right there. This may or may not stop the symptoms from occurring. It’s not going to solve the problem.

Once you are going through your system files, you might as well erase everything using the “Clear Win Data” tool. This will overwrite your Windows installation directory with a blank file. This is known as a super user feature. In other words, you are making yourself running extra sure of things. When you are deleting the files, do not care for having anything in it.
I have mixed feeling about using the “Remove Win Data” tool. On the one hand, you really have no idea what is in there, and on the other, you really don’t want to know what might be in there. You’re just glad you deleted it, once and for all. If you are using this tool with Qianny, then the same procedure might be different.
You will need to get to know your Internet Service Provider (ISP). This is the company that is providing you with the Internet connection. If you are using Internet as a service, then your ISP is responsible. Read their policies, or ask someone that knows what he or she is doing if you should consult a legal expert.
Delete emails with suspicious contentBefore you delete suspicious emails, make sure to do so. Ethically, you should always delete unknown emails. However, there might instances when you or someone else might open the email. Regardless, make sure to do so to avoid any further computer harassment.
If the email is from someone you know, then it’s a good idea to forward it along with its header to the ISP. If it isn’t, then you might get an email relating to the same email, but it will be from someone who has downloaded the email address. In that case, you will need to contact that person and explain that you have received a suspicious email and would like to know who it came from.
Contact the sender using the information at the end of the email (if you received the email worthy of its sender). This will correct any First World Problems.
Inform the sender that you are not going to run an adware check on him/her as there is no need for them to do so since they are not selling anything.
Defend yourself from any emotional blackmailing that might come from an unknown person.
Remember that friendship letter vowels are like honey to a bee. They need to be kept on your list of trustworthy people for protection.
Never give your credit card number to anyone, in whatever way, so that they can send you some ridiculous virus that will make your life a complete nightmare.
